VAM: Visual Arts Masters is a group of Professional Photographers and Videographers who offer services to the performing arts industry. VAM was proudly affiliated with the Youth America Grand Prix, World Ballet Competition, VK IBC, Orange County Ballet Theatre, New Jersey Ballet, Downtown Dance Factory, Greenwich Conservatory of Classical Ballet, Ellison Ballet.

Downtown Dance Factory is Tribeca’s first comprehensive dance center. Launched in September 2009, we’re excited to offer a wide range of dance styles – including jazz, classical ballet, hip hop, tap, lyrical, musical theater and breaking classes - for students from twos to teens. Downtown Dance Factory follows in the “dance steps” of our highly successful sister school in Sydney Australia, The Jazz Factory.

Our aim is to foster a love of dance and a freedom of self-expression through movement, through any number of dance styles and techniques. Enjoyment is absolutely our number one priority, however all students are encouraged to develop their dance style and technique to their full potential, no matter their age or level of dance experience.

Many serious dancers who train at Downtown Dance Factory have attained a superior level of artistry and technique, recognized by their notable success outside our studio walls. Dancers continue to be accepted at prestigious institutions, both for summer programs as well as college. Below is a list of programs and schools to which Downtown Dance Factory dancers have been accepted.
